Directions for Felt Bookmarks

Cut out a piece of felt or you can use a felt square.  Cover the whole piece (or whatever section you want to use for the bookmarks) with Mod Podge.  Let dry for 24 hours.

Then start stamping!  The stamps worked best on the side the mod podge wasn’t applied to.

DIY Bookmark Tie

If you want, punch a hole in the end and tie a thin piece of felt on it.
